Jessie Finch

Professionally Training Since 2017

With over 6 years of professional experience, her journey into dog training began with a childhood passion for animals. Growing up in an area where abandoned animals were all too common, she often found herself bringing home strays and providing them with the care and love they deserved or helping them find their forever home.

Her dedication to helping dogs find their forever homes led her to volunteer in animal shelters, where she provided companionship, exercise, and training. Witnessing how dogs with basic training had better chances of being adopted inspired her to learn more. This passion was further ignited when she received Yoshi, an adolescent puppy that was a Jack Russell Terrier mix, as a gift from her mother.

Yoshi faced challenges like reactivity, resource guarding, and separation anxiety, which opened her eyes to the struggles that many people experienced and how it impacted their everyday life. Unfortunately, their journey began with setbacks when a trainer worsened his issues. Determined to help Yoshi and dogs like him, she embarked on a path to professional training.

Under the mentorship of a Guide Dog for the Blind Trainer, who also enjoyed working with pet and sport dogs, Jessie gained invaluable knowledge and skills that empowered her to make a difference in the lives of families and their canine companions.

Her journey continued at Petco, where she taught group classes and eventually became a mentor for aspiring trainers. However, Petco's restrictions on helping dogs with more difficult issues motivated her to establish Paws The Attitude, where she could provide tailored training solutions for every dog and owner.
Jessie believes in the ongoing journey of learning. She prioritizes continuous education, proudly supporting IAABC and holding professional membership with APDT. As an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and AKC Trick Dog Evaluator, she evaluates canine skills. Additionally, as a dedicated student of Fenzi Dog Sport Academy and an avid attendee of various conferences and workshops, she remains committed to pioneering dog training techniques and methodologies

In her free time, she enjoys sharing her home with two dogs whom she trains and competes with in Rally, Barn Hunt, Dock Diving, and Nose Work.
